We arrived safely into Bangkok after a 10 hour night bus arriving earlier than expected (5.30am!) from Chiang Mai on Sunday morning.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our first 2 days in Bangkok, living the life of luxury staying at a lovely Hilton hotel. Thanks very much to Vince for gifting us his Hilton hotel points and diamond status.. we have enjoyed free breakfast, afternoon snacks, afternoon tea, and cocktails/light dinner. Together with an upgraded room and a nice pool to chill in. Funny how different it is compared to our £6-10 a night stays the past month. We are also staying next to a 7 floor posh shopping mall which is apparently the biggest in Asia so couldn’t resist a ‘quick’ look around in between our free snack times. We also got the free Hilton boat across the river where Nat got a (not so good) pedicure.
We have caught up on sleep and are now off to actually get out the hotel and explore Bangkok. Nats friend Rachel moved here Just before we got married so we’re meeting her for dinner tonight and staying near the big backpacker Street.
After hours of searching and deciding where to go next, we have finally
Booked a nice 4 night stay on an island called Koh Chang, not far from Bangkok to save us having to travel further down south to the more popular islands.
